Nikolaos Kopsahelis serves as an Associate Professor (appointed on November 2017) in the field of Food Chemistry & Industrial Fermentations at the Department of Food Science and Technology, Ionian University (Kefalonia, Greece). Since 09/2021, he is elected Head of the Department, and he is also a member of numerous committees related to the governance and the quality assurance of the Ionian University. His research interests focus on fermentation technology, food (including agricultural by-products and waste) chemistry and analysis, biotechnological valorization of renewable resources, but also on the development of novel biorefineries/fractionation processes for the production of high added value functional products within the context of circular bio-economy, towards the establishment of sustainable food systems. He demonstrates prominent experience in the field as he has participated in more than 25 research projects, whereas in 5 of them he acted as the scientific coordinator, entailing a total incoming budget of more than €2.000.000. The Laboratory of Food Chemistry and Industrial Fermentations was originated by Dr Kopsahelis on October 2018, and contains state-of-the-art laboratory equipment (including supercritical CO2 extraction equipment and electrospinning among others) with a floor space of ~100 m2. Up to date, Dr Kopsahelis is supervising 3 PhD candidates, 3 Post-Doctoral Research Associates and 3 early-stage researchers, that constitute the research group of the Laboratory of Food Chemistry and Industrial Fermentations, at the Department of Food Science and Technology. As an Associate Professor, he has supervised 6 Post-Doctoral Research Associates, 3 PhD students and >40 undergraduate students. He has published >79 papers in international peer-reviewed journals (average impact factor >7), 5 book chapters, 2 patents and has >90 participations in international and national conference proceedings.
